    Is DASH a "Security" as defined by SEC?

    I have. Are you certain your interpretation (or Dash Core's) does not include an element of "wishful thinking"?... Not trying to spread FUD, just trying to be realistic. I believe most think it is not a security, because they believe the following statement to be false: "any profit comes...

    Is DASH a "Security" as defined by SEC?

    Sorry, but you are incorrect. Masternodes make it a security. Money is tied up/invested with an expectation of profits or set dividends. This makes it a security. No FUD, just facts.

    Dash "stock split"

    That's the existing solution, and yes we could update the wallet, but that does very little to solve the problem. We do not have control over 3rd party wallets, and we do not have control on how exchanges present Dash. They will most likely continue to display Dash they way they do today, and...

    Will DASH's Market Cap ever reach 1bil?

    Time will tell, but yes... it is a real concern. I initially switched to Dash because of InstantSend, and I have since hedged my bets due to this.

    Dash "stock split"

    Yes, there is a clear psychological barrier to purchasing based on price. Average people don't understand the concept of market cap. That's part of the reason, Ripple's at $14 billion market cap, ethereum's $9 billion, and nem's $2 billion. I proposed to solve this a different way in another...

    Will DASH's Market Cap ever reach 1bil?

    I think in the short term we are heading down... Natural market forces which happen regardless of the work we are doing. Once Evolution is released and InstantSend is presumably fixed as part of it, I think we will go parabolic, similar to others that are on the path to solving instant...

    Proposal: Adaptive Proposal Fees

    The Core team works for us... not the other way around. I'm pretty sure everyone here realizes governance questions are not something to be toyed with. That's why we've had very few in the history of the proposals. Projects and most functionality should be handled by Core, however, there...

    Pre-Proposal: Integrating Dash into exchange in Africa

    Thanks for the updates. That makes a lot of sense. I can see how low liquidity can result in low volumes even with high demand. If the proposal is made, it will have my vote.

    Dash Gateway Plugin for Shopify.com, so that 400,000 Shopify store owners can accept Dash

    I have no doubt a proposal like this would be funded if you have the resources to make it happen.

    PROPOSAL: ABJ to Shift From News Updates to Global Market Outreach

    Love the idea, and love your ambition. The only way we'll be able determine how well it works is to try it. This will have my vote. Thanks for all the work you do to spread Dash awareness.

    The Masternode Exploiters: No Loyalty, No Shame

    I agree, but I think what we've learned from this, is at a minimum, we need to have a one year exclusivity agreement that would include any cryptos forked from Dash. This should be a default contract for all future funding.

    Dash Marketplace Live Preproposal Video

    The idea is "ok". Sorry to be blunt, but... the claims that Jerry made regarding him propelling Dash to #1 through a business like this are reminiscent of a used car salesman. People tend to think that having a good idea you can just create an online business and be an instant success...

    Pre-Proposal: Integrating Dash into exchange in Africa

    I like the idea and would probably vote yes depending on how much your asking for. How long has your exchange been around and what is the growth rate? Will this proposal include integration for InstantSend? Also, for people to feel comfortable voting on this proposal you'll need to prove you...

    Proposal: Adaptive Proposal Fees

    Nothing! The sad thing is, that if we were using the median today and were trying to change it to a fixed amount like 5 Dash, the same people who are voting this down would be arguing to vote the 5 Dash down. There are some people who need to be told what to do. In other words, it's not the...

    I don't think so. This worked in the past. Below is an old post of mine that included a link to the vote history. Notice, it is no longer valid.

    Dashvotetracker Issues

    What's the deal with https://dashvotetracker.com/, we can no longer view the graph for proposals that are not being funded? I don't want to jump to conclusions, but this seems a little suspect to me.

    Coinapult Integration + Dash Core Hires 12 Full-time Devs | DASH: Detailed

    My understanding is that Coinapult is the closest thing out there to Coinbase as far as integrating with bank accounts. Bank account can be linked and ACH transactions can be setup through the GUI to fund accounts. With that said, I think that Coinapult should be listed very prominently on our...

    Kraken: trustworthy or not ?

    10 minutes, is that normal? Did they not implement our InstantSend correctly, or is InstantSend not really instant? Can somebody provide clarification on this?... This is a big red flag for me!

    Pre-Proposal: Create the first DASH gateway on Ripple

    I don't believe this is necessary for this project. I can't speak for them, but their business model revolves around adding more cryptos to the Ripple network so I can't imagine them signing something like this for this project. This project is about making Dash the next crypto they add ahead...

    Kraken: trustworthy or not ?

    Exactly! Hopefully they fixed it since then... I use it for login though so I'm not certain.

    Kraken: trustworthy or not ?

    ^^^ I skimmed through the link you posted, and it looks like the person that claimed they had 2FA enabled only had it enabled for trades and not login. Apparently Kraken sucks as far as security because they let the hackers login and change 2FA trade settings. Make sure 2FA is setup for LOGIN...

    Kraken: trustworthy or not ?

    These security breaches are less to do with Kraken, and more to do with weak security setup by the user. Kraken offers 2FA, so use it. Also, these users were most likely "hacked" because they used the same username/password combination they've used on other sites that were hacked. Pick a...

    HempSweet Decentralized Industrialization Alliance Proposal

    Out of respect for Alt36, I am replying here. I find it immature that you posted this within their pre-proposal and more immature that you would respond like this, especially if you were serious about your proposal. I'm not sure why you are burning bridges with us, because I think we would...

    Pre-Proposal: Would you like to be able to vote with number?

    Average is usually referencing mean. Sure, add an option for median and it will get my vote. Mean and mode are both too flawed for this type of voting.

    Evolution Marketing Campaign

    I'm relatively new to Dash, so I'm wondering... Why do you say this? Has the Core team not met their scheduled deliveries in the past? According to the roadmap below, Evolution will be released January 2018. Also I've heard people mention this summer, but have no idea where they got that...

    Potential Issues with Masternodes (1000 Dash requirement)

    There could also be things added that strengthen the existing network before more masternodes are needed... Like "Proof of Processing Power", or something similar which would be needed to earn payments. This would also help insure people who know what they are doing are running MN's and not...

    Pre-Proposal: Would you like to be able to vote with number?

    I have changed my vote from "Yes" to "No". Yes, I think voting with numbers would add a lot of value, but as pointed out by this discussion, average is flawed. Median would be the only acceptable solution for me.

    Dash air drop - best strategy ever

    Dash treasure hunt

    I live in the US, and as much as I would like to see a contest like this here... I think the best place for it today would be Japan. Japan began recognizing digital currencies as a legal form of payment on April 1, 2017.

    Dash treasure hunt

    Need to appeal to and reach everyday people, not just us Dashers... If it was formatted in such a way that the contest was announced and maintained on dash.org or some other crypto site... I would probably vote "No", because we'll just be reaching ourselves and other crypto enthusiasts. If it...

    Dash treasure hunt

    Why not pick a city and advertise on the local radio... If it is a success, then select 2 cities next time, and 3 after that... It would just need to be well planned out with different clues everyday, and a person within the city responsible for setting up the treasure hunt.

    Pre-Proposal: Reduce Proposal Fee to 2 Dash

    You are too funny. They will just need to figure out all the votes in the median area and pay them off... Probably only need to figure out 100 or so to make a (small) difference, lol. Shouldn't take too long to figure out who those people are since this information is published and all...

    Pre-Proposal: Reduce Proposal Fee to 2 Dash

    That simply isn't true when those 1 or 2 people control 100+ masternodes... Show me how these 1 or 2 people can manipulate a median, then I'll listen... I think you need to go back to the drawing board on this one.

    Pre-Proposal: Reduce Proposal Fee to 2 Dash

    I'm not sure why you think that?!... Mode average is most useless sense there are a few that own 100+ masternodes. One of those could very easily qualifiy as the mode, in which case, they have full power. The mean average is also useless because of the outlier votes. One person with a lot of...

    Pre-Proposal: Adaptive Proposal Fees

    Why not convert back to the previous month's price? Seems to make much more sense. 5 Dash can be any value and it could render governance useless for a session.
